Letter to the editor: The COVID pandemic is not over

Posted

We read with great wonderment recent statements by CDPHE and the Colorado State Board of Education related to the state’s lifting of rules for COVID masks, quarantines and outbreaks in schools and other crowded places.

Mutant D now has a new cousin, Mutant D+. In many parts of the country, re-establishing the much-hated mask rule looks inevitable. Vaccination rates are not approaching levels required for herd immunity. And vaccination will not be a requirement for fall entry into Colorado public schools.

So … here we are. Mandates thrown out the window.

We can pretend the COVID pandemic is over. Bureaucrats can pretend the COVID pandemic is over.

The COVID pandemic is not over. The COVID pandemic is not over. The COVID pandemic is not over.
